We have vast experience in advising management corporations in the day-to-day management of their respective estates on each and every conceivable issue that can arise in the realm of estate management.
Recovery of arrears in management fund and sinking fund contributions
Management funds and sinking funds are the lifeblood of any management corporation, providing funds for the maintenance, upkeep and renewal of the estate.
Our team works on each and every recovery case with a measure of robustness and ensuring a good rate of success in recovery, be it through the lodgement of MC Charge and/or commencing legal action against the defaulters. We ensure that each and every procedural step in the recovery process is done in a timeous manner, so that successful recovery is achieved in the shortest time possible.
Effective recovery of arrears ensures that a management corporation is not deprived of precious funds that are essential in the running of an estate.
Management of the estate
Each management corporation has the heavy responsibility of managing the common property in its estate for the benefit of all owners and occupiers.
Armed with sound knowledge of the law, our team has argued successfully in many applications taken out either in the courts as well as the Strata Titles Board, securing compliance with the provisions in the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act as well as the by-laws and house-rules of each estate.
We also assist management corporations in the drafting of by-laws and house rules to better manage their estates with clarity and transparency.
Claims for defects
It is almost inevitable that new (and sometimes old) estates will experience defects in building and design and these often have major ramifications for the estate, especially when extensive rectification works are necessary.
Our team is adept at providing professional advice and assisting management corporations in the process of negotiations with 3rd parties as well as acting for management corporations in various dispute resolution platforms, including mediation and in court actions.
